I did well also. I ate my meal and tried a few desserts but what stands out the most this year is that I didn't internalize any bad feelings regarding holiday conversations, relatives' personalities, etc. I think this is the first year that has ever happened. The great thing about that is that when company left, I had no urge to binge, because my feelings weren't all raw. I did have a terrible headache, but I am conveniently blaming it on the barometric pressure that day. (so it's possible that I did have a bodily reaction to the company, but it did not result in a binge, that's my point, lol).
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." (NIV)
I actually did pretty good over what was a 5-day weekend filled with family meals and frivolity. I gained two tenths of a pound because I just couldn't stay out of the cookies but since my food choices are slanted more toward veggies these days, I managed to avoid gaining five pounds and I have to crow about that :) A friend shared a tofu turkey --which was out of this world, by the way -- and that was our Friday meal along with a little viener schnitzel for the meat eaters. I made the schnitzel but I only ate a little piece to make sure it was right. It definitely was. Four of us made short work of a fresh apple and pear pie and half a cherry pie as well. Our lunches and night snacks were comprised of various leftovers and the fridge is pretty well cleared out now. Over all, I don't feel I have anything whatsoever to be ashamed of related to Thanksgiving and my eating habits. And THAT is definitely something else to be thankful for :)
